BREAKING: North Korea’s Kim, to new South Korean counterpart: So, how do you like me now!

The New York Times reports that North Korea sent a message to South Korea on Saturday night (U.S. EDT), just days after the South elected its new president.

The missile took off from the northwestern city of Kusong, and flew more than 430 miles before landing in the sea between North Korea and Japan, the South Korean military said in a statement. Data on the launch was still being analyzed by the South to determine the type of missile.

The United States Pacific Command detected and tracked the missile. Marine Corps Maj. Rob Shuford, a command spokesman, said that flight data indicated that it was not an intercontinental ballistic missile, the type that most concerns the United States.
